About the Media Center
All students coming to the Media Center during the school day must have a pass from their teacher. Upon entering the Media Center you must sign in to the white binder on the table by the office. If you need to use the rest room, sign out and back in on the clipboard.
Ms. Piscione is our library media specialist. If you have any questions about the Media Center or need help finding information, please stop in to see her or send an email!
Check Out Procedures
Students may borrow up to 4 books at a time.
Students will not be allowed to check out materials if they have an overdue book.
Books may be checked out for a 2 week period.
You may renew your library materials as long as they are brought to the library to be renewed.
Books can be returned at any time in the slot located at the front of the circulation desk. Do not leave returned books on top of the desk because they may get put away without being checked back in.
Some reference books may be checked out overnight.
MMS Media Center subscribes to several magazines. Magazines can be checked out for one week. Below is a list of what we currently have:

- Students are expected to maintain behavior that is appropriate to the academic environment of a library. No shouting, running, or throwing things. Do not disturb or distract other students who are studying or reading.
- Please tidy up and clear all trash around you, return supplies to the desk or drawers where they belong, and push in your chairs. You may leave library books you are not checking out on the book cart or on one of the round tables.
- When lining up at the end of a class, stay away from the stairs and the entrance door.
- If you see something out of place and you have the time, be nice and help put it back.
- Be respectful and careful handling the books, equipment, and furniture.
- Students are not allowed to eat and drink in the library without special permission.
- The four pillars of PBSIS and all school rules apply the same as anywhere else.
Our Mission Statement:
The mission of the school library program at Memorial Middle School is to assist all students in becoming active and creative locators, evaluators and users of information to solve problems and to satisfy their own curiosity. With these abilities, students can become independent, ethical lifelong learners and readers who achieve personal satisfaction and who contribute responsibly and productively to the community and society as a whole.
